Title

THE IMPACT OF LEARNING CULTURE AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY USE ON KNOWLEDGE-SHARING: A CASE OF KFUPM

Abstract

Nowadays Knowledge is regarded as a strategic resource in organizations, and thus the leverage of

knowledge is a key managerial issue. Knowledge creation, sharing and dissemination are the main

activities in knowledge management. This study examines the influence the social and technological

factors such as learning culture and IT use, could have on knowledge sharing of King Fahd University of

Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) students. A cross-sectional survey was used as a methodology for

data collection and 137 valid responses were collected from all the three categories of students that

include graduates, undergraduates and preparatory students. The study shows that there is a significant

positive relationship between the student learning culture and IT use on student knowledge sharing. The

study limitations, practical implications, along with directions for further research are discussed.
